Is this what it looks like? ..... a crayfish?
found in gravel drive west of Houston texas
gravel from Brazos River.

and from the looks of the shape of the stone there could be more lurking inside....sorry about photo quality

will take more with good camera later am having a problem getting the photos to upload from camera.

I'm afraid you need to explain the joke to me. I see a rock.

Not seeing a crayfish, or any fossil here, unfortunately. :(

I also just see a rock with possible tiny shell fragments, but they may be quartz. 

Can't see a fossil.

My two cents:is it just me,or is there nothing crustacean about this?

I can see how someone could think this could be a vertebrate cranium,but,gee..

I think I see it. 

You're thinking mold fossil with the claw leaning toward the coin ?

It would indeed be an extraordinary fossil. As such it will require extraordinary evidence though.

Not there yet. :)

Still cannot discern anything fossiliferous in the stone.  :(

I can see it being the badly eroded remains of a shell. I can even imagine it having been a crustacean claw.

The problem is that I can also see it being a mineral layer that I can imagine these things being in. :)

Can you outline on the picture what it is you think you are seeing?

well bad lighting....

 

These photos are better. Is this what your seeing, where I drew the red lines? I see something but you need to zoom in more for us to tell.
